Book Donations are welcome May – November during open hours.   

Please drop off book donations inside the bookstore during open hours. We are no longer able to accept donations outside of store hours—no matter the size. Thank you for your understanding!

The Friends of the Library request that donations include only:

  • Gently used books
  • DVDs
  • CDs

We ask that all items be in sellable condition; before donating an item ask yourself, “Would I buy this item?”

The Book Store cannot store, display or sell old textbooks, dictionaries or torn, soiled or musty books, all of which need to go to the dump. Pre-2005 travel guides, atlases, and textbooks are also too space consuming and no one has purchased an encyclopedia in years. With a heavy heart these must also be consigned to the dump.
